Half the pics are the same, you didn't state the year or where you're located.

Great looking bike and I like the color change - it's nice to see a 919 that isn't candy red. Good luck with the sale!

Did you fill those grab rail holes yourself? What product did you use? I'm thinking of painting mine Nardo Grey this spring and would rather fill them than put in plugs....

Perhaps you can see if you can shave off the two bumps as well? Turn the rear into a flush look ?

I had my buddy Fill the holes in when he re painted the whole bike. Iím not exactly sure what he used to fill them in. Bike was painted 3 years ago and itís in excellent condition, he does top notch work.Gives the bike more of a sleek look.

Definitely agree on making it more sleek and making it look "newer"

See if you can find some plugs to attach. Seems to be a nice compromise.

You'll sell that bike in the spring, if not before.

Did you do a Fat Bar?

$2700 gives a new buyer plenty of room to re-do the suspention. Good value.

I always wondered how much difference the inverted forks would make, but TBH, the weight seemed like not too much of a difference.

It would be interesting to compare a fully setup stock 919 set of forks to others. Meaning gold valves for full adjustability (if that can happen), custom progressive spring, etc... vs full USD fork change.

Yeah I'm not sure how much difference there would be,,, I do ride quite a bit of twisters and my foot pegs are always scraping... I suppose if I wasn't selling it buy a set of headsets for it as well.

Changing your body position will stop your pegs from scraping much more affordably than suspension
